This image comes from a delightful 1904 children’s book, Fun & Nonsense by Willard Bonte, originally published by H.M.Caldwell Company, NY & Boston. It’s available to view and use, almost without restriction, via the wonderful Project Gutenberg. Here’s the accompanying text, which seems somehow appropriate for me today:
“Alas! I fear my mind doth wander.
As o’er this narrative I ponder;
I usually know what I have read,
But this time I have lost the Thread.”
